We are challenging you to think about ways you can be engaged in stewardship everyday!
Prayers: Pray for Bellevue UMC by name every day
Presence: Make a commitment to attend worship and a spiritual formation group every week.
Gifts: Be intentional in setting aside your gifts to the church. Consider online giving as a way to help the church have regular giving year-round. Also consider participating in the UMCMarket.org and choose “Bellevue Nashville” as the organization to receive your donation. Also look at the Amazon shopping program we have set up.
Service: Don’t wait to be asked – volunteer to serve! There are always opportunities listed in the bulletin and “News & Notes” each week.
Witness: Look for opportunities to share how God has acted in your life with your neighbors, family, and colleagues.
Cameron Clements, one of our young adult members, shares about her faith and commitment to being “present” with God – “present” by being a part of the ministries of the church. She understands her “presence” as part of her vows of membership and a part of her commitment to stewardship and also a way to experience God in her life.
You have opportunities to give to Bellevue UMC through some of the ways that you go through your daily life!
Do you shop online?
There are two opportunities to be able to shop and donate to Bellevue UMC at the same time!
Go to the UMCMarket.org site and download the app. Register with the program, sponsored by The United Methodist Church, using your email and your chosen password. Add your contact info in the registration box. Once you are registered go to memberships. On the search box type in “Bellevue Nashville.” Choose that group! Make it easy and remove any other groups that may automatically be listed. A percentage of your purchases from participating stores will be donated to the church. When you go to a web-store that is a participating vendor a small drop down box will appear telling you what percentage of your purchase will be donated. No one knows what you are buying, so your privacy is secure. We simply receive a check for the combined amounts of all of of the sales from your purchases in the various percentages from the stores. NOTE: You do have to go to the UMCMarket website and click on Amazon under the store listings in order to shop on Amazon through this program. Amazon will pop up just as you are used to seeing it once you click on the “shop now” button on the Amazon store link on UMCMarket. You will also have to go back a few days after purchasing from Amazon to confirm your purchase.
Bellevue UMC is a part of the Amazon Associates program. Use this link and every purchase will result in a donation to Bellevue UMC. No one knows what you are buying, so your privacy is secure. We simply receive a check for the combined percentage amounts of all of of the sales from your purchases made from this link. It’s that easy!
Make it easy for yourself – bookmark the link as your Amazon link (remember to delete any older Amazon links you have.) You’ll know you are on the “right” page if you see “bellunitmethc” near the end of the URL.
